Step 1: Supplies
Filler for the dolls body such as batting, straw, or rice
Black and white Socks with no match ( all of us at one time or another have a sock with no mate) and I used one black trouser sock
Pattern for doll and dress or make your own pattern like I did
Step 2: Draw the pattern pieces onto the fabric
Trace the pattern onto the fabric using a light pencil, It helps to allow room along the edges of the fabric to place the hoop so that the fabric will be tight as you embroidery the design.
Do not cut out the fabric pieces until after you embroider all of the designs.
Step 3: Embroider The Face and Torn Designs of the Doll
Step 4: Cut Out The Fabric Pattern Pieces
With right sides together sew around the body of the doll leaving the hip section open to allow for stuffing.
Sew the arms and legs leaving the end open of the arms and legs that will be attached to the body of the doll.
